Match Predict – Handicap (-3.5) for Bencic
A year ago in Miami on the hard court, Bencic saw no resistance from Kostyuk (6-3, 6-1). Belinda entered the new season more than confidently under Dmitry Tursunov and will clearly have a good chance of reaching the quarterfinals today. Especially as Marta did not impress in her opening game against Cirstea.

In their only face-to-face encounter, Kostyuk only managed to win four games. It’s unlikely we’ll see a long match today. Especially as Bencic has won seven of her eight victories in the new season with an accurate 2-0 in sets.
